The Essex Advantage
Essex Partners was founded to exclusively focus on the unique requirements and ambitions of senior executives. We provide a comprehensive array of services to help our clients thoughtfully consider and effectively pursue the next chapter of their careers. Whether it’s another executive role or some other endeavor, Essex provides a proven approach with concrete processes that create real value for the executives with whom we work.
The consulting services at Essex are provided solely by partners of the firm and are highly customized to match the individual needs of each client. All partners combine extensive experience in the career-management field with real-world business backgrounds. Equally important, partners work with a limited number of clients, allowing them to provide unparalleled levels of access and one-on-one support. Underpinning this high-touch approach are the premier facilities, exceptional administrative support, and in-depth research capabilities executives would expect from an industry leader.
Essex offers leading-edge services to help clients explore alternative career avenues and entirely new paths such as entrepreneurship, consulting, and board work. Our proprietary LifeKey program enables clients to take a systematic approach to exploring their overarching priorities and interests to develop a portfolio of fulfilling work and life activities. Spearheaded by our seasoned business psychologist, Essex also offers the most comprehensive and practical career assessment process in the industry.
As a division of Keystone Partners with roots in the Boston metropolitan area for more than 25 years, Essex Partners has deep connections to an unsurpassed network of alumni, employers, and recruiters in the New England area and beyond. We also provide a broad array of events to enable current clients to connect with that network as well as with one another. Whether looking in New England, across the country or around the world, Essex Partners has the resources and reach to deliver the results you want.
